A powerful new 2016 study by McDonnell et al has shown that Vitamin D deficiency is associated with significantly increased overall risk of cancer, whereas Vitamin D sufficiency (defined as blood Vitamin D levels of > 100mmol/l) is associated with a 77% lower incidence rate of cancer.*
This most recent research makes a significant contribution to the science of Vitamin D and cancer, which also includes:
- A 2005 study by Lowe et al that reported an 83% reduction in breast cancer risk in women with high vs low vitamin D levels – European Journal of Cancer
- 2014 study by Mohr et al that showed breast cancer patients with the highest levels of Vitamin D had approximately half the fatality rate of those with the lowest levels of vitamin D – Anticancer ResearchA 2007 study by Lappe et al that reported a 77% reduction in all invasive breast cancers in women who supplemented with vitamin D vs those who did not – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
- A 2007 study by Lappe et al that reported a 77% reduction in all invasive breast cancers in women who supplemented with vitamin D vs those who did not – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
